TWQQF ch 358 - Convinced to Move; Misunderstandings and Broken Heart (8)

“She is my fiancée and her name is Xiao Xiao. You can just refer to her as shi sao.”1

Mo Xuanzun smiled triumphantly. Then, turning to Cheng Xiao Xiao, he said, “Xiao Xiao, they are inner disciples of the Clan of Magical Swords. I have met them a couple of times in the past.”

“What ‘shi xao’!” said Cheng Xiao Xiao as she rolled her eyes at him. She curtsied the two young men and said, “Good day, you two. My name is Cheng Xiao Xiao, you can just refer to me by my name!”

“Heh, if shi xiong Mo said you are shi sao, then you must be shi sao!” said the man in a purple brocade as he cupped his hands and greeted Cheng Xiao Xiao. “I am Ma Chaoyu. Greetings, shi sao Mo!”


Cheng Xiao Xiao was speechless. Why were all these people all behave the same way and just ignored her opinions?

“I am Wang Siwei. Greetings, Miss Cheng!” said Wang Siwei with a teasing smile as he, too, cupped his hands and greeted her. Then, turning to Mo Xuanzun, he said, “Shi xiong Mo, I apologies. I don’t think I can refer to her as shi sao until you two are officially wedded.”

“Hrm, Wang Siwei, if you dare try anything, I shall break your bones!”

After a cold warning, Mo Xuanzun forcefully grabbed Cheng Xiao Xiao’s hand as though to make a point and said, “Xiao Xiao, let’s go eat and ignore this bunch!”

“Hey!!” Cheng Xiao Xiao felt uncomfortable with him holding her hand, but she also didn’t want to contradict him in front of his friends, so she could only let him take advantage of her.

The waiter waiting at the second floor was full of smile when he saw the two arriving. He seated them at a table by the window and asked as he wiped down the table, “Young Master, Miss, what would you like to eat today?”

“Bring a few of your specialties. As long as they are tasty, anything will be fine!” ordered Mo Xuanzun with a wave of his hand.

“Yes, Young Mister and Miss. Be right up!”

The waiter loved nothing more than easy customers; he went downstairs immediately to put in their order.

Before the two could even exchange a word, the unwanted guests reappeared. No invitation necessary, they both looked for their own chairs, seated themselves, and smiled at the two of them.

“Why are you still here? And Why are you following Xiao Xiao and I?” They were certainly not Mo Xuanzun’s favorite people at this moment.

Wang Siwei, with a face full of smile, said, “C’mon, shi xiong Mo. Don’t be like that. Shi xiong Ma and I were just on our way to visit Miss Cheng at Willow Village. Now that we have ran into the two of you, of course we are going to invite ourselves to join you!”

“Visit Xiao Xiao?” Mo Xuanzun squinted at them like they were some sort of thieves. “What do you want from Xiao Xiao? If it was mystical water and mystical animals that you are after, just go look for Manager Zhou. Or even that Old Man Ying!”

“Well, naturally we would like to make some purchases as well. But there are other matters that we’d like to discuss with shi sao. Shi xiong Mo, are you really that petty to not even let us talk to shi sao Mo?” smiled Ma Chaoyu.

“Exactly, shi xiong Mo. That’s not cool!”

Wang Siwei felt disgruntled and continued saying, “Shi xiong Mo. As I recall, shi mei Gong from the Palace of immortal beasts was quite fond of you, no? I wonder what shi mei Gong think about the two of you being a couple!”

“Stop that nonsense….” Mo Xuanzun paused for a second, then frowned.

Shi mei Gong?”

The only one person from Palace of Mystical Beast that Cheng Xiao Xiao had heard of was Gong Zixuan. She couldn’t help but to ask, “Pardon me, is that Gong Zixuan that you are talking about?”

“Eh? Miss Cheng, you knew shi mei Gong?” Wang Siwei was genuinely surprised.

Even Ma Chaoyu raised his brows in surprise. From their perspective, there was no way Cheng Xiao Xiao would know about Gong Zixuan. After all, there were a big gap between the two’s statutes.
